Artist Martina Mrongovius takes us through her work with holography. Using a medium that is often associated with security imaging and science fiction Martina describes how holograms influence her creative practice. Unlike conventional still-life holography, Martina’s holographic compositions experiment with optically stenciling together multiple recordings to create spatially animated scenes.
The installations of holograms that Martina has created around the world, entice viewers to move around the space to reveal the animated scenes. As the holographic perspective is animated by the viewer’s own movement the images trigger a proprioceptive spatial experience of the recorded scene.
This documentary follows Martina into the lab and through a number of her exhibitions to reveal how she uses the holographic medium to narrate an urban perspective. While offering a rare glimpse into the process of creating holographic imagery, Martina’s installations also bring up broader issues relating to how visual media shapes perception.
